While inclusion with the International Association of Top Professionals is an honor in itself, only a few women are chosen for this distinction based on their years of experience in the field, professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, and contributions to their communities. These are truly incredibly talented women who have dedicated their life to their work and have had a lifetime of achievement and success in a male dominated industry!
In 2018 Dr. Christina Seo was honored at IAOTP’s Annual Awards Gala at the Plaza Hotel in NYC for her selection as Top Doctor of the Year by the International Association of Top Professionals. For 2019, she will be honored at IAOTP’s Annual Awards Gala being held at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas for her selection for the Empowered Woman of the Year Award. www.iaotp.com/award-gala
Dr. Seo is being recognized with this distinction for having over 14 years of professional experience in the healthcare industry and proving herself as an accomplished woman and expert in a male dominated field.

Dr. Seo handles more than 500 cases per year and oversees office procedures and all business administration for the practice while maintaining a good rapport with her patients.
Originally wanting to become a ballerina, Dr. Seo always knew from an early age that she would end up in the medical field. Both of her parents are in healthcare and she wanted to follow in her parents’ footsteps, where her father is a doctor and her mother is a nurse practitioner. “It was a natural progression for me to pursue a career in healthcare. This career was determined for me in utero,” Dr. Seo Jokes. After she graduated from High School Dr. Seo went on to graduate from the New Jersey Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering. In 2001, she earned her MD from Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. Dr. Seo also speaks multiple languages including Spanish and Korean.

Aside from her successful career, Dr. Seo is active in her community and maintains her affiliations with ASCRS, the Catholic Medical Association and the American College of Surgeons.
Looking back, Dr. Seo attributes her success to her parents, mentors she has had along the way, her training, perseverance, and her passion for helping people.
